First of all, can I just say that I have FINALLY updated my blog, bought myself a new domain and a new design and although it is not exactly how I want it, I’m so glad that I’ve taken the plunge because I loveeeee it! Blogpost on my experiences coming soon!
So last Christmas, I had the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar and even though I am candle-obsessed, I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. It was very repetitive and I would’ve preferred to buy one of their bigger jars! So thats why, this year I decided to buy myself an advent calendar that I would actually enjoy.
I love Sanctuary Spa brand, I’ve always used their products and they just always smell insane. I knew I’d use everything so I was so excited to open this on December 1st!
It was also a lot cheaper than other beauty/non-chocolate advent calendars I’d seen so I jumped at the chance when I saw it online! I’ve seen people say that they didn’t like it so much or didn’t think it was worth the money but I totally disagree! It’s only £25 which was a lot cheaper compared to other advent calendars (my little sister had the Jack Wills advent calendar which was worth £35 and had smaller products and didn’t have the same variety). I feel as though you got good sized products and different varieties. For example, I got a detox mask, and various lotions and their matching body scrubs but never more than one variety of the same product, and they were all between 30-75ml, which I was impressed with!
There were a few things that were clearly fillers, a cookie cutter and the bulldog clip weren’t particularly relevant, but I really liked the eye mask and the toe dividers. They were items that I needed to buy for myself but never got around to getting, so it was quite handy for me.
One thing I didn’t particularly like was how flimsy the doors were. I kept ripping the cardboard and I’m so fussy when it comes to advent calendars, but it is definitely something that I can live with.
I honestly think that this advent calendar was a bargain and I’m definitely going to be buying it next year!
Did you have an advent calendar this year? Which one was it?
